The first 11 or so miles is REALLY up and down. If I were to do this hike again, I would start halfway and just do the last 20 miles for scenery. I wouldn’t do the first 20 miles again. The trail is most often a long distance from the river and only seldom affords a view of the river you came to enjoy. I would recommend this if you’re in good shape and don’t mind the constant undulations of up and down on the trail.
